Gender Recognition: A Focus on Transgender, Nonbinary, and Intersex Awareness – Online Training

UC Riverside is making strategic and systemic changes to ensure inclusion of transgender, nonbinary, and intersex people.

Length: 20 minutes.

Topics Covered:

  • Become familiar with terms and concepts related to gender, gender identity, gender expression, and the nonbinary and intersex communities.
  • Understand the Gender Recognition Act.
  • Understand name, title, salutation, and pronoun best practices.
